Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks! We've really fallen for RI and your beach house. We will miss the views, the sunsets, the wonderful seafood and the fab beaches. Whale watching in Point Judith (Francis Fleet) was excellent. We hope to come back to these parts before too long.

I love the quiet with only the sounds of the waves and the birds!

Lori K. or Helen S. purchased this house in 2005

I always wanted a big house right on the water. Just walking in the house is the ultimate 'aaahh' moment for me. I could just hang out all day looking at the water, enjoying the peace and sound of the birds and waves. When I want to swim, just go out the back door. No packing, loading the car, searching for a place to park, etc :-)

This home is on a peninsula so water views are on both sides of the house. Private beach 200 ft from back door. Has central air. Beach towels included. The ultimate place to chill! Great for kids and family.

All the comforts of home and than some...

  • 5 of 5
We spent a long weekend here in March. The weather was in the 40's and low 50's allowing us to enjoy walks on the stone and sand beach, This is a bay beach, so no waves and it is more stone than sand, but quite a view and very peaceful. If you like bird watching, this was a great location for watching winter ducks, so bring your binoculars. In a warmer season, this would be a great location for kayaking. The water and bridge views from inside the house are wonderful. The way my bed was situated, I could watch the lights of the bridge and the stars out my window at night. I hated to go to sleep. Mornings we spent lounging in the two large sunrooms enjoying the views and the coziness of the house. The house is 20 minutes from Newport and some might feel like it is removed a bit from the town. To us, this was a plus as the drive was easy and it afforded us the opportunity to explore the island on the way in or out of town. It's a great area to just drive down streets to see where they lead. Great views and beaches are throughout Middletown and Portsmouth. We were also only a couple minutes from Bristol and Tiverton over two separate Bridges. We enjoyed exploring both since we were so close. Both were charming. The Boathouse was a nice restaurant/bar in Tiverton with scenic views and good food, just a little pricey, but worth it. From the window there, you looked across the water to the peninsula the house is on. Four corners in Tiverton was a quaint little area with lots of art galleries and a great place for homemade ice cream called, Grays. Bristol has a great farmers Market Saturday morning at MT Hope Farm. You can get fresh eggs in assorted colors, really good fresh baked bread, jam, and seasonal veggies, etc. Although in March it was mostly root vegetables and it was inside a beautiful historic barn with live music. Also check out the Beehive Restaurant in Bristol a very quaint downtown on the water. All in all, the area is beautiful and fun to explore and this house feels like your home away from home. I am so glad we chose to stay here over a hotel in Newport. Plenty of room to spread out and all the comforts of home, and than some.

Lovely Water Views!

  • 5 of 5
I am very particular about renting a clean house especially like to have clean bathrooms, this house was very clean and tidy upon our arrival which immediately made us feel comfortable. I was pleased with how quickly Helen (the owner) responded to my inquiries plus once at the house we were greeted with a nice bottle of sparkling wine to welcome us and we were given information on how to contact the property manager if needed so always felt like we were able to reach someone if a problem arose. Great relaxing location to begin the day with wonderful water views and to end the day with beautiful sunsets and the Mount Hope Bridge lit up at night. Our favorite part was waking in the morning lying in bed looking at the water with Boats and Birds going by, such a lovely way to start each day. As quiet and relaxing as it is where the house is located you are in close proximity to Newport and the Mansions, Providence, Supermarkets such as Stop and Shop, Clements Marketplace and good restaurants such as Evelyn's in Tiverton, The Moorings and O'Brien's Pub in Newport. When not out sightseeing we spent time walking on the beach in the back of the house collecting seashells. Overall we had a very enjoyable relaxing week at the house, would definitely stay here again to enjoy the lovely water views and quiet location when we next visit R.I.

Lovely bayfront vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
The home was exactly as it is in the photographs. Bright, sunny, spacious and the views are fantastic! The sunset on the bay from the back porch and sunroom was worth every penny. When we arrived the house was clean and ready for us with fresh towels, soft bedding and a friendly note and candle from the property manager with contact information should we need anything. Our children loved collecting shells on the beach, running in the large yard and we loved sitting and taking in the view. It was close and central to Boston, Providence and Newport sightseeing and made a lovely and comfortable home base. We loved the quiet, relaxing neighborhood after a day in the city and recommend it to families traveling in the area.

Oceanfront Home.

This was a great place to stay. We enjoyed the location. We spent a week there with our 3 kids and their spouses for a family get away. Very comfortable home. Being close to the water was nice. Very quiet and very little traffic. Neighbors we meet were very friendly. The owner was great to work with. She responded quickly to any questions and provided us with good information. We would consider renting here again.

June 2010

My family and I stayed at this home for a long weekend in June and I have to say that it was much more then I expected. I was hesitant to rent someone else's house because you never know how others live but this was not the case. The house was very clean and well kept. I can't say enough about the climate control. I don't like to be hot when I sleep, I like my bedroom like an icebox. I was extremely impressed with the central a/c, the house was not even slightly warm once! It's on a very quiet road away from the highway with a great view of what I think is the Newport bridge in the distance. I've never slept in such silence, it was great! It's also located right in between Providence and Newport so you get the best of both worlds. The restaurants nearby were excellent and grocery stores and department stores were close also. I definitely give this home an all 5's rating. We're definitely coming back again next year! A fantastic time was had by all!!!

Notes:
This house has central air conditioning. When comparing houses, ask if they have window unit a/c (most common in RI) or central a/c. You will enjoy the difference it makes.

If you have your own kayak, you can just push it off the beach into the water, or you can rent kayaks at Island Sports. A large formal children's park is just down the street. Private beach has small sandy beach with smooth fist sized tocks staring at the water's edge and extends horizontally about 25 ft, then a sandy bottom. Recommend aqua socks or fisherman sandals.Great place to swim, sun collect shells or just walk on the beach. Maid service is provided on checkout and is included in the price. Additional maid service can be arranged.
